As the leader of Jacksonville commercial real estate firm Prime Realty, Tyler Saldutti has seen his company grow exponentially as the market has rebounded. In the past 18 months, Prime Realty has more than doubled its staff to meet client demand. Tyler is a fourth-generation real estate entrepreneur and, before starting Prime Realty, was a top producer working for a global commercial real estate firm. He has consulted real estate owners and users from a wide range of industries and built a reputation for finding the best real estate solutions through creative deal structures and a project approach to each assignment.    Let's hear from Tyler as he shares tips on how his company works and how to leverage the brokerage Community to scale your real estate business.    [00:00 - 07:00] Prime Realty: We Do Low Volume, High Quality   Tyler Saldutti is the founder of prime Realty, a commercial real estate firm in Jacksonville, Florida. Prime Realty is the leading or premier boutique brokerage doing over 250 transactions. Tyler started in New Jersey working construction and then moved to South Florida, where he worked as a consultant and learned to develop his two passions  helping people build wealth through real estate investment and supporting entrepreneurs. In 2008, when the economy was tough, Prime Realty reinvented itself as a boutique operation that services family offices and small businesses.   [07:01 - 13:51] Boutique Real Estate Firm Uses Exclusive Relationships and Nimble Marketing to Close More Projects   Tyler adds that a high-quantity low-quality business model can't be nimble and custom when it's big. How a boutique approach is different, and how it results in better quality work for the agent and higher closing rates. Tyler recommends that agents work hard to build relationships with brokers and not get sucked into a crony system. Agents should also stay in touch with their brokers to ensure they are always on top of new opportunities.   [13:52 - 20:46] Real Estate Broker Sourced and Assisted with Every Acquisition   There is a real estate broker that has been helpful in all of the acquisitions that the speaker has made, and he recommends staying in touch with the brokerage community to stay up-to-date on opportunities. The role of a broker is different than that of other professionals involved in a real estate transaction, and their goal is to maximize their sale price and return on investment. It is important to verify information about a property before making an offer, as there can be significant differences in how different buyers view it. A good business plan for a real estate project should include     [20:47 - 24:50] Closing Segment Reach out to Tyler  Links Below Final Words         Tweetable Quotes “Finding those exclusive relationships, meaning you may invest in property all over the country, but you may have somebody in Chicago that knows the industrial market there and You're dealing with them whenever you're in Chicago and dealing with the industrial market, that's going to be the only person you're going to work with.” - Tyler Saldutti ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Connect with Tyler visit their website at https://primerealtyinc.com/ Or call 9043730578     Connect with me:   I love helping others place money outside of traditional investments that both diversify a strategy and provide solid predictable returns.      Facebook   LinkedIn   Like, subscribe, and leave us a review on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, or whatever platform you listen on.

Check it out below: [00:00:38] Sam Wilson: Tyler Saldutti is the founder of Prime Realty in Jacksonville, Florida, where he is overseeing the funding acquisition development management and leasing of over 2000 retail office, industrial multifamily properties throughout Florida and Georgia. [00:00:52] Tyler Saldutti: Tyler. Welcome to the show. Thanks for  [00:00:54] Sam Wilson: having me. Hey man, the pleasure's mine and 90 seconds or less. Can you tell me, where did you start? Where are you now? And how did you get there?  [00:01:00] Tyler Saldutti: I started in New Jersey working construction, growing up, my father and uncles. And that was how I saw real estate. It was the physical production of space and there's something that's just very rewarding about seeing the. [00:01:16] Tyler Saldutti: The result of your labor growing up outside Manhattan. So many industries are dollars and cents. And something about seeing your end product got my blood in 2008, I started Prime Realty. We're a commercial real estate firm here in Jacksonville, Florida. And now we're the leading or premier boutique brokerage doing over 250 transactions. [00:01:37] Tyler Saldutti: Like you were.  [00:01:37] Sam Wilson: That is really cool. I love that. So when you were in the construction business, were you guys general contractors? Were you guys the owners developing the project? What  [00:01:48] Tyler Saldutti: was your role in that? Well, you may have picked up from the last name, style duty. I'm a Italian American from Jersey. [00:01:54] Tyler Saldutti: So you. Know, I had family members in all sorts of trades. Electricians, like I said, my father is a general contractor. I member working for an uncle that was a site works contractor. So, it was, exercise of getting to see a little bit of everything. Like I said, mostly from the. [00:02:12] Tyler Saldutti: Property improvement or construction side spending weekends winter breaks off of sports. Mostly it was in the summers working in the different trades. So, this way, as my career progressed, I have this vision and understanding of what's behind all the numbers and spreadsheets and what it takes to construct and develop and manage. [00:02:35] Tyler Saldutti: Manage office, industrial retail and multifamily property. So you see all the different colored logos. We have that. That's what that's all about. Those are our four main food groups and how we divide and conquer and commercial real estate.  [00:02:50] Sam Wilson: How did you make the jump from working in the trades? [00:02:53] Sam Wilson: Working as a GC to, I know I should go start a brokerage. That kind of seems a little disconnected  [00:02:59] Tyler Saldutti: there. Sure. After growing up in New Jersey, I traded commodities in south Florida, a very business development, intense environment. You might picture a large bullpen of financial advisors making. [00:03:18] Tyler Saldutti: Business calls and developing new relationships in the dozens of conversations today, sometimes hundreds from there, I worked for a small business consulting firm in London and really developed, my two passions are helping people build wealth through real estate investment and supporting entrepreneurs. [00:03:40] Tyler Saldutti: And. Working for mostly medium size companies in London and consulting, a lot of it was geared towards their marketing systems and operations. You developed an appreciation for that small and medium sized business owner that as you help them get results kind of back to you can, there's a transparency and, a visual when you help a business that. [00:04:06] Tyler Saldutti: Versus maybe a, the, when we consult bigger firms and bigger organizations maybe it's not as clear there. So all of that to say that the boutique operation, that services a lot of family offices or family groups, small businesses is where I've found my life and my passion and it's been a good fit ever since. [00:04:31] Sam Wilson: So let's talk about your brokerage then. So you launch a brokerage in Florida, you say, Hey, we're gonna do commercial brokerage in 2008. The timing seems a little rough. Tell me tell me how you guys made your way through that period. And kind of what, I guess, what lessons  [00:04:48] Tyler Saldutti: you learned along the way? [00:04:49] Tyler Saldutti: Well, 2008 was the great recession and it was very there was a lot of Turmo. And the economy at that time, I was working for the largest commercial real estate brokerage in the world doing investment sales, which meant I got to touch multiple different property types. And, you, I saw, I had to reinvent myself into more leasing and management in addition to the investment sales. [00:05:17] Tyler Saldutti: And it's what people needed at the time they needed. Their building's full so that they could cover their debt service. They needed property management that was finding ways to be more efficient and save money. And again, coming back into that from having a very deep understanding of the investment side, the ownership side, balancing that with the leasing and the management There was we did, I didn't complete a sale transaction for over a year after starting Prime. [00:05:52] Tyler Saldutti: So, we saw that there was a need for a boutique approach. We saw that. The quantity over quality of work model was not gonna work. In other words, 2007, you could put a sign in front of a property. Somebody's gonna call you. You're gonna get a transaction done. Let me tell you, in 2008 times were tough and you built a lot of good habits. [00:06:14] Tyler Saldutti: And this firm was built on those habits. So when things are let's say more normal we're really, hitting on all cylinders because we've been built with a very proactive and project oriented approach that truly is effective in the most difficult of times. Which. Which it, which was a very difficult process to do. [00:06:37] Tyler Saldutti: Right. But boy hasn't served us well ever since. So  [00:06:41] Sam Wilson: I'm really curious when you say the need for a boutique approach and the other phrase you said there was, you built a lot of good habits. What are the things that come to mind when you say that? Because obviously not being a broker on this side, I don't, can you paint a picture there for us that you said, Hey, here's the problem I saw? [00:06:58] Sam Wilson: And this is kind of how we decided we're gonna do  [00:07:00] Tyler Saldutti: it differently. Sure. So we turned the quantity over quality equation on its head, if you're at a big firm, you're gonna have different overhead, you're gonna have a corporate office that you're feeding constantly. And your business model is built to make that corporation money. [00:07:20] Tyler Saldutti: And it's very successful and you might need to have three dozen listings in order to, effectively close half of those transactions. And it works for the broker, right? And the broker makes money and the agent makes money. But it's high volume. Low quality, you're fitting everything into a system that has to be somewhat effective for a variety of different projects. [00:07:49] Tyler Saldutti: Right? You can't be nimble when you're big. You can't be custom when you're big. And the boutique approach is the opposite. So, we've got our systems, we test and measure. We've got all the same technology, all the same marketing platforms. All the gizmos that the big firms have, technology's been a great equalizer amongst all firms, but we do low volume, high quality. [00:08:13] Tyler Saldutti: So project approached with the unique business plan for each project. The critical non-essentials whether we're working with a buyer or a seller, a tenant or a landlord, we. Get to have a curiosity and get to know their business more so than you can if you're in a high volume business. So, it's the customization you can do. [00:08:37] Tyler Saldutti: It's the expertise you can develop and then it's just being proactive. So if we're on the marketing side, we, if we're working on maybe 20 deals instead, 40, it's not rocket science. It's picking up the phone. If you're trying to find a space where a dental practice, you're calling all the dentists in town, and you can do that on a boutique approach and be more pro project oriented. [00:09:00] Tyler Saldutti: We close, darn near a hundred percent of the projects we take on. And at a bigger high quantity firm you're doing between 30 and 50% closing. And that's a lifestyle. 50 to 70% of your clients being frustrated with, Hey, how come I don't hear from, Hey, what's going on? I don't see what you're doing. [00:09:20] Tyler Saldutti: And when you have lower quantities, you're able to do that kinda work. Got it. It's more enjoyable.  [00:09:26] Sam Wilson: No, that, that makes a lot of sense. Thank you for taking the time to, to clarify that, cuz that again, not being in your business, I go that, just needed some more deeper understanding of that. [00:09:37] Sam Wilson: So that's really cool. Thank you for sharing that with us. Tell me about this. The broker and call, let's say the broker and buyer and broker and seller relationships are they're unique and have their own, nuances to 'em. What are some things or some tips that you would give that you would say, Hey, here's the way that you should be effectively leveraging your broker relationships? [00:09:57] Tyler Saldutti: Well, there's three things that I think. Investor or just real estate entrepreneur should keep in mind when trying to leverage the brokerage community to help them build their business. And the first is to really work hard, to build those relationships in an exclusive manner. And it's always important to date before you get married. [00:10:25] Tyler Saldutti: As you're trying to engage a brokerage community, you can work with somebody quite a bit before. You're really like I said committing to them in any sense, but a commitment. It should be the end goal on both sides. The brokerage community is an E what you kill industry. They were not able to pay our bills, support our families. [00:10:50] Tyler Saldutti: Unless we get results. And so we have to be very disciplined at what we commit our time to. And we, as you can imagine in a market like today in 2022, there's a lot of buyers, right? So how do you as the buyer distinguish yourself and try to build that exclusive relationship, it goes both ways. We're the, broker's looking for an exclusive relat. [00:11:18] Tyler Saldutti: And the buyer wants to be the first one to get the call when a new, exciting opportunity becomes available. So, I don't think anybody ever expects a exclusive relationship. That's not logical, meaning, you're not gonna have one phone conversation with someone and say, gosh, you're the only broker I'm ever going to use on every deal I ever do. [00:11:39] Tyler Saldutti: But finding those exclusive relationships, meaning you may have somebody. And you may invest in property all over the country, but you may have somebody in Chicago that knows the industrial market there that you through. You're dealing with them whenever you're in Chicago and industrial market, that's gonna be the only person you're going to work with and so on and so forth. [00:12:05] Tyler Saldutti: So, that's the first. Main goal I'd say for any investor owner, entrepreneur is to try to build these exclusive relationships and they can be one, it can be one person, one that does and quarterbacks all your deals, but it can also be a, a group that you formed together. [00:12:23] Tyler Saldutti: The second thing is. I'd say don't get sucked into a crony system. So again, having been in corporate commercial real estate world, there is a crony system in a national platform that, a customer that works with X, Y, Z company. And that company has offices all over the country. You don't want to be dealing with somebody that just has the same logo on their business card because Hey everybody, you know what a nice logo, right? [00:12:56] Tyler Saldutti: If you're going into multiple markets and the way that we approach it, and most independent firms approach it you're able to be nimble and partner with the right brokers or agents in that market. In other words, no firm has the. Agent or broker in every single submarket in every single property type in every single market. [00:13:17] Tyler Saldutti: So you may find when you're in Boise that the CBR E broker on the west side of town for multifamily is the best and that's their niche. And you might find. It's the cushioning Wakefield broker. And you might find it's another independent firm. So I would say don't get sucked into a crony system that doesn't serve you and your goals don't align with you and your broker that way. [00:13:43] Tyler Saldutti: And the third I would just say is follow up and stay in touch. Like any good relationship. I can't tell you. I've been blessed to build a small real estate portfolio. There has been a real estate broker that has sourced and assisted with every acquisition I've made. And I can't tell you how many opportunities come from staying in touch with the brokerage community and the experts and the specialists. [00:14:06] Tyler Saldutti: And and they're given property types and marketplaces. And submarkets whether that's a phone call a few times a year with a lunch, And, I make a point to, to go to that lunch once a year, make a point to play around at golf or whatever it is. That you enjoy with that person and hopefully the broker's doing the same, but but if you are disciplined and scheduled about it, you'd be amazed by how much those once a quarter, once a month, touching base calls will lead to, to really profitable acquisitions. [00:14:38] Sam Wilson: I love that. Thank you for taking the time to break down those three really valuable points there. I wanna circle back to the first one. However, when you said to build relationships that are exclusive, my question is this, how do you know when a broker is someone who is worth building that exclusive relationship with  [00:14:57] Tyler Saldutti: they've made you, they've made you a lot of money, a broker. [00:15:01] Tyler Saldutti: Should be your most valuable tool in your toolbox? I've often been said throughout the years that the brokerage community is the grease that keeps the gears of the economy going, a broker's role, the way they're compensated and the value they add is different than everybody else in that transaction, whether it's the seller. [00:15:27] Tyler Saldutti: And their goal to maximize their sale price, the buyer, their goal, to limit the maybe limit the purchase price and achieve the highest returns or limit municipality. That's gotta help you with the zoning or the contractor. That's gotta do the property improvement. So the attorney that's gotta assess the risk. [00:15:46] Tyler Saldutti: Everybody has their role but even that entrepreneur that's importance is finding the value maximizing return and being creative. They are not playing the role and motivated to keep the transactions moving forward. Right. And bringing people together and finding ways the broker has got to achieve everybody's goal right. [00:16:13] Tyler Saldutti: In order for there to be a successful transaction. And so, how do you know when you've found that? Well, you've made a lot of money. That's truly it. I mean, the foundation of any broker relationship is, made, saved. Or achieved a great return on investment and at Prime Realty, we work with both sides. [00:16:34] Tyler Saldutti: So, making a lot of money on the buy side is obviously different than making a lot of money on the sell side. But you're looking for someone that's got that deep, specific niche specialization. You're looking for someone that's collaborative, right? That's not trying to force you into their, oh, don't worry. [00:16:54] Tyler Saldutti: I know all the buyers in the market, we're just gonna, market this off market. Don't worry about it. And so you're looking for somebody that. Goals or aligning with yours or being collaborative. They've got that specialty and they've proven to you that they're they're able to make you a lot of money. [00:17:10] Sam Wilson: I love that answer. That's great. I've got one final question here for you and this'll come off as harsh or as snarky. So I apologize in advance, but I guess we don't ever look at the broker brokers. PROFOR. Like they're all packaged up. They're put across and they're part of the shiny brochure. And the first thing we do is totally ignore 'em. [00:17:30] Sam Wilson: Why is that? Why is that the case? Well,  [00:17:34] Tyler Saldutti: Gosh, I know those brokers that you're talking about, and I know those packets you're talking about and I'm fighting a good fight here at Prime. For that, not to be the case. But I also believe everyone's doing the right thing in starting from scratch. [00:17:55] Tyler Saldutti: Right? So you take your, you take your secondary sources of information, but you verify and I would say. If I look at a property with three different buyers, there's going to be three different ways that they look at that. So it makes sense that everybody starts from a blank spreadsheet, ideally, truly a blank spreadsheet and takes everything I've been saying about a project approach and customization, and does that for each property. [00:18:30] Tyler Saldutti: So I, I think the idea that. Any marketing offering memorandum or any one spreadsheet is gonna be adequate in deciphering what an individual or an organization's unique business plan is for that property. That doesn't make sense. And, I don't think you understand our industry. if that. The way you approach it. [00:18:59] Tyler Saldutti: Well, well, here's my spreadsheet. It's a template and I, and I put this and this is how we, doing that is just as wrong as like you're saying, trying to take the offering memorandum and say, well, this is how this is this, if that's how that property was gonna perform. [00:19:13] Tyler Saldutti: The only thing anyone can tell you about their offering memorandum is the property will perform. Not to what I have in my offering. thatAnd right. This is a an estimated summary of what you might expect with the business plan that we've come up with. Right. and so I think it's more important to be able, like we touched on before, understand what's behind those numbers as you help your buyers. [00:19:41] Tyler Saldutti: evaluate an opportunity that nobody's spreadsheet can tell you what their unique resources are to add value. And then what their ability to access capital. So, nobody nobody's putting out offering memorandums. They might have some consumable debt assumptions, but. One of the, two criteria that nobody can do is what are your unique resources to add value, and what's your ability to acquire funding for it. [00:20:12] Tyler Saldutti: So what, you're, what you're able to source interest rate amortization fix time period, versus what I'm able to source. Is different and it's always gonna be difference between investor a, B, C, and D. So, I think everybody's doing the right thing by taking the summary analysis from the offering memorandums and then getting rolling their sleeves up and, and doing the work on their end to build the B the successful business plan that, that a good investment should include. [00:20:41] Sam Wilson: Tyler. Thank you so much for coming on the show today. I certainly appreciate it learned an absolute ton from you.

Charity Wakefield's passion for the natural world shone through when we caught up at her local green space. I met the actor, environmentalist and Woodland Trust ambassador at Peckham Rye Park to talk about trees, wildlife and acting. Charity explains how nature has made her happy since the tree-climbing, den-building days of her childhood. She is concerned that people have lost their connection with the environment, but is hopeful for the future and encourages us to recognise that we can all make a difference. She believes in ‘people power'. We also talk eco-friendly fashion, filming comedy-drama The Great and climbing a tree to learn her lines in Lewisham! Don't forget to rate us and subscribe! Learn more about the Woodland Trust at woodlandtrust.org.uk Transcript You are listening to Woodland Walks, a podcast for the Woodland Trust, presented by Adam Shaw. We protect and plant trees for people to enjoy, to fight climate change and to help wildlife thrive. Adam: Charity Wakefield is an actor, environmentalist and Woodland Trust ambassador. She starred in BBC One's production of Rapunzel, Constance in The Three Musketeers at the Bristol Old Vic, and Elaine in the Graduate at the New Vic. She had a lead role as Marianne Dashwood in Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility and has been in Doctor Who, the Halcyon, Bounty Hunters, amongst other productions. And she's now starring in the TV series, The Great about Catherine the Great. Well, I met her at her local park to talk about acting and the importance of the natural world. Charity: So now we are at Peckham Ride Park, which has been my local park for most of my time in London. I now have a baby so there's lots of kinds of mother and baby groups around the area. I have lots of friends here still. Adam: Are you a country girl or did you grow up in the city, or? Charity: Erm, I, I never thought of myself as a country girl. I did grow up though in and around East Sussex. I used to live in a couple of different places down there. We moved a bit as a kid. Adam: Sorry, why don't you, you grew up in the country, why did you not think of yourself as a… Charity: I don't know Adam: You know you thought of yourself as you felt your inner urban woman early on? Charity: I just don't think I grew up with any sense of identity if I'm honest, because I also live a little bit in Spain when I was very small. And like I said we moved around quite a lot. So actually I'm an actress and I trained at drama school and going to drama school at the time of going to university for most people if you do that, that was the first time I really had this interest to work out where I was from, or you know you kind of try to identify yourself by telling each other, and also drama school, in particular, you're looking at different kind of life experiences and personality traits, because it's material for you, right? So, you start kind of realising ‘oh I that this background or that background'. Yeah, for me, being from the countryside just meant desperate driving as soon as I can. I could drive about a week after my birthday because I had secret driving lessons with friends and my dad and stuff. Yeah, I guess I have always loved the countryside and I sort of you know had friends you know the family were farmers and we used to go and make camps in the woods. Adam: Well, that's good, and talking of woods we seem to be, what's down there? That's a very wooded area, shall we go, you lead on, but shall we go down there? Or Charity: This is the Common, this is Peckham Ride Common, and erm I think it was, has been around for at least a couple of hundred years and it's a really big open space with some really huge trees in the middle. They're probably like, lots of them are London planes and oak trees, and I think this section we're about to walk into was actually sort of closed off at the beginning I think it was a big common and this was owned by an estate. A sort of family estate and then opened a bit later which is why as you can see it is much more formal Adam: I was going to say, so we are leaving a sort of really a very large green area with the Shard poking its head above the trees, so your urban environment, but walking into this much more formal sculptured… Charity: And actually you can walk the whole perimeter of this, and this is quite close to the road here but the other side is as you can see really big open and free, so it must have been quite weird at sort of the end of the 1800s, I suppose that kind of bridge between a really rich family that owned this huge part of the park in the middle, so this is yeah, now we are under these beautiful red-leaved trees, you probably know what that tree is? [Laugh] Adam: No, no, no, no, let's not embarrass each other by [Laugh] Charity: [Laugh] Okay no tree testing Adam: No tree testing [Laugh] Charity: Okay Adam: Well, this is, this is beautiful, so let's… there's a lovely, lovely bench with a dedication actually, some flowers connected to that. So why don't we have a sit down here and just have a chat? So, first of all, you mentioned you went to drama school, what drama school was it? Charity: I went to the Oxford School of Drama, which was the smallest, most obscure place I could have probably have found [Laugh] but it probably was the best place for me actually. It's funny, sometimes what's for you won't pass you as they say, erm a tiny drama school in the middle of the north of Oxfordshire. Acting is really hard and part of it is the marathon of it and the difficulties of getting jobs and everybody says this but failing continually and feeling like you haven't actually achieved things perfectly. In the theatre that means doing a show and there being some moments during the night where you think ‘uh that didn't work out right' and you have to be that kind of person that is interested in those kinds of faults and failures and wants to try different things and fix things and part of gaining that resilience is what I think drama school is all about. Adam: I mean apart from, I do want to talk to you more about your acting, but apart from that you do have what I see as quite a close connection to nature, reading a lot of your social media and learning about your activities, so tell me a bit about that, what is it? What is that connection and why do you feel it? Charity: I think growing up, albeit in a kind of little village or a town, but kind of in the countryside it was quite… it was a bit freer back then, I think it was different days, the early 80s. being allowed to sort of wander off, with friends and go into kind of woodlands and stuff. I think, I just feel very happy when I am in nature and I am interested in the differences, everything is growing and changing all the time. And it was interesting I went to LA once, and I thought this is so strange to me because the seasons aren't so apparent. Particularly when you live in the countryside your so kind of affected by those changes and erm I really love animals and I love knowing the circle of life, like where those animals came from, how they're are fed, what they do naturally, and then getting older you start to understand a bit more about the history and human history and how we have you know got to where we are today the kind of beginnings of farming and how society functions and unfortunately we are at a point now where we've outgrown ourselves, and how do we kind of pair that back? How do we get back? Adam: When you say we've outgrown ourselves what do you mean? Charity: I think humans have outgrown ourselves in a sense I think Adam: In what sense? Charity: In the sense that we've lost track I think of the essence of how you, I think yeah, we've lost track of how life is interconnected with nature. Because we're pushing technology further and further and some people are saying the answer is to eventually get into space rockets and go and start a new community on Mars and to me that's mad because I feel like we have everything that we need on this planet. And we just need to reconnect everything. Adam: Why do you think that disconnection has happened then Charity: Yeah well, I think it's a big question. Because I think it happens on so many levels. I think that there is a disconnect with people who are very very fortunate and have a hell of a lot of money, and in some ways don't notice the effect that their companies or their personal lives might be having on the environment because they are so loaded that they get given their food people and they probably never see plastic packaging to know that it exists because they are just delivered things Adam: Right Charity: and they don't really realise the impact that they're having, they're living kind of you know the high life Adam: Sure, do you think we're all living that sort of life? Charity: No, I don't Adam: Or it's just the 1%, or the quarter of the 1%? Charity: No, I don't, I think there are lots of people that are the absolute opposite. They haven't got the time, the money and the education to be able to do anything about it even if they did notice that there is an issue. Adam: And yet it is curious that isn't it, because and yet David Attenborough the national hero, his television programmes are all watched, and you know Charity: But they're not watched by everybody. Adam: They're not watched by everybody but there seems… I mean I get the feeling that you know there's this weird thing where everybody's talking about the environment and very concerned about it, even if perhaps if we're not changing our lifestyle, but my, my sort of view is that people do get it even if they're not changing their behaviour. You, you feel differently, I think. Charity: I think that there's, I think there's lots of people on those both extremes that don't get it at all and I also see lots and lots of people living on the poverty line, particularly where I live in the Borough of Lewisham, who are, and I know some people are working crazy hours and don't have time to think about it. About any kind of impact, and certainly don't have time to do complicated recycling or and they don't have the budget to be able to shop in a kind of, what we would probably on our middle-class wage perceive as a kind of eco conscious way. And because what's difficult is even if you do do that it's very hard to sort of balance what is the best consumer choice to make. As we all know, so we're in a difficult way, but what I do believe is that I believe in people power, and I as you say David Attenborough has made a huge impact and it is much more in the mainstream, hugely so in the mainstream in the last couple of year, and I do think its down to kind of lockdown and people staying at home and having the chance to stop and think and reconnect with their immediate environment but whether that's in a high-rise flat looking out listening to the lack of airplanes, being able to hear nature more, or somebody that's got, you know, fifty acres and has decided to buy a diamond Jubilee woodland for the Woodland Trust, you know, that there, I think we are kind of you united as we are the people who had a chance to stop and listen and look and then it's about people that are in positions of power and money to give us a direction to go in. to give us a positive idea Adam: So, apart from being intellectually being engaged with this, you're worried about it, you're clearly worried about it, you do a lot of things. Charity: mmm Adam: actually, so tell me about the lots of things you do Charity: err well I really love… I've always…So, fashion is a part of my job in the sense that I have to wear lots of different clothes, and um for my work Adam: well then you were recently in The Great Charity: That's right so I do a TV show, period TV show, and so I Adam: So, there's lots of costumes Charity: there's lots of costumes, I don't really have control over where those costumes are made and bought, but sometimes I do so, for example, if I'm producing a film or if I'm in a low-budget theatre production, I might provide my own clothes for that theatre production, and if producing then I am certainly in charge of deciding where we can get clothes, so for example, we go to charity shops and second-hand places because there is so much stuff in the world already. And I try to do that in my personal life. Adam: But do you have a label, a fashion label? Charity: No, nothing like that no Adam: But you, but you talk a lot about conscientious fashion on social media Charity: Yeh, I do because erm, …. Erm I am looking for the word, influencers! And stuff like that because I get approached for things like that and so I'm very conscious that If I am going to be in front of any kind of camera people are going to make a judgment or think that might be a good idea to wear, so I try to conscious about what I'm wearing if in the public in any way. And really that's just an extension of my real life, I've always shopped in charity shops, when I was growing up that was because we didn't have any money, so my clothes were given to me by other families, or when I first started to work, which was around fourteen, I worked in a strawberry farm – that was my first job! And my second job was in another strawberry farm, picking strawberries and my third job was the same strawberry farm but in the grocery shop. Adam: Okay, you got promoted! Charity: Promoted Adam: Promoted out of the fields! Charity: Absolutely, literally up the hill Adam: and Charity: I've become extremely aware of how difficult it is to manage woodland, and I didn't even know that as a concept, I just thought that big areas or parkland or woodland or farmland, I had not concept really of how that was looked after, and that's one thing that I think is I don't know, its both inspired me and made me realise what a huge challenge it is to be able to reforest large areas and the other fact of everything being so slow – trees reaching their maturity at such a slow rate – and that being a very difficult kind of challenge to sort of ask people to become involved with because I think when you're asking people to you know kind of sympathise with a charity or donate money to a charity in some ways its more difficult to say this is an extremely slow process but we need your help urgently… so it has been interesting to learn about that side of things. And I've also been deeply shocked and saddened about how many of our ancient woodlands and hedgerows and trees that are still being cut down in this country, partly for huge roadways but partly for new buildings and farmland and that does feel quite urgent to me. But yeah I've learnt a lot. I think one of my favourite things has been seeing the tree listening which I put on my Instagram if anyone wants to have a look Adam: So, tell me about tree listening. Charity: so, there's a way to hear the water being filtered up and down trees and it's the most beautiful sound and to me, it's a sound that I could go to sleep to. I keep thinking, I must try and find if there's a recording online that I can grab and put on my phone to listen to at night-time. And it gives you that sense of the tree being alive in the here and now. Trees grow so slowly it's sometimes quite difficult to think if the as, as kind of, living in the same time zone as us. So, hearing that, that's a very present sound really, I don't know, it makes you… it makes you want to hug the tree even more [laugh] Adam: Are you a bit of a tree hugger? Charity: Yeah, yeah, I am! Adam: Do people spot you in Peckham? Strange woman hugging trees? Charity: I do sometimes do that, the weird thing is, this was, I was in a different park in Lewisham, and I'd actually climbed the tree because I just felt like it and I also had some lines to learn. And it was quite an empty park and I thought well this is fine, and I was in a tree learning my lines and a lady came and she saw my bags on the floor and she was so freaked out she just looked up and saw me in this tree, and I have to say it was a weird sight. I have to really say Adam: [Laugh] Charity: This is so weird, I'm an actress and I don't know what I'm doing, sorry Yeah, I just, yeah, I love…I think it was also, when I was growing up, a bit of a place to kind of go and hide, you know if you're kind of stressed out or worried as a kid, and rather than run away, go and climb a tree and be up really high – it completely changes your perspective. Adam: Has having a child changed your perspective at all? Charity: I think it just strengthened my love of nature because it's the first thing that you teach kids about. All of the books that people give you are all about spotting different animals and trees, and the sunshine and the bees, everything he loves is related to outdoors, I mean that's, it's his first summer, he's fifteen months old and erm I've moved to a new house recently and been trying to work the garden a bit because it was very very overgrown. So, it's been my great pleasure to be outside and doing lots of digging and his first proper words has been digging, dig, dig, because he heard me say digging and he just started saying dig, dig, dig. [Laugh] Adam: Fantastic Charity: He said that before mummy or daddy. Adam: So, are you optimistic, I mean all those things you talked about erm are you optimistic that the world for your child will actually, things will get better during his early life? Or not? Charity: I feel burdened with the worry of it, and I try to not think about it, because the world is huge and there's only so much, I can do. I do feel optimistic in the human endeavour and human invention and ingenuity. But I am sad that it's going to get to a point of huge environmental catastrophe before real change is made by our governing bodies. But then if you look back at the pictures just pre-industrial revolution of these thousands and thousands of huge billowing chimney pots in London and you know, they're not there now, and the world is a lot greener than it was then, at least in cities. So, I kind of, yeah, I have hope otherwise you know… what's the point? Adam: I mean it's interesting isn't it, there's… I often think about how to shape the narrative here because I think often the narrative of ecology and the environment is one of ‘there's an impending disaster' you know ‘it's all terrible' and I'm not saying that's not true, but I think it's hard for people to engage with because it's like ‘well what, what can I do about that?' and I think it was, hopefully, I got this right, I think it was Barrack Obama who wrote a book on it called the Audacity of Hope and you talked about hope and it is this sort of weird thing, actually to be hopeful is an extraordinary thing, it is audacious to be hopeful and that might be, might be a better message actually, that there is this big challenge and actually the audacity of hope in what can, can we do, individually? Individuals can make a difference. You know yes joining the Trust and what have you, and doing other things, and planting a single tree Charity: I think you also have to look after yourself as a human in the world. Try to give yourself time and love and energy. Then you'll be in a really good spot to be able to help other things and other people and the environment. It's very difficult like I say if you're on the breadline and you're exhausted to actually have the headspace and the energy to do stuff. And you know, and so those people that are unable to do that we need to, I do believe, socially we need to enable people to be able to care for the environment. If you're in a position where you do have enough money, and you do have enough time, and you still feel worried, then there's tons you can do on a day-to-day level. And I actually think that action is much more infectious than talking. I know we're talking here today, but the best thing that I have probably ever done is about two or three years ago I just wrote on Twitter I'm giving up plastic for the month of January, this was before it was kind of fashionable to that and rather than saying everyone should do this, everyone should do that, I just said ‘this is what I'm doing'. I didn't even talk about it. I just said ‘I'm gonna do this' and so many of my friend's a couple of months later said ‘oo you said that and actually, I tried it as well', they didn't even talk to me about it they just kind of tried it. They started, whenever they came over, they said ‘we I didn't bring, I didn't buy any plastic because I knew you weren't interested' I thought wow! You just actually have to put a stick in the mud sometimes and say this is what I'm doing, and try to have the energy to stick to it, and of course, we have… we can't be perfect… the world is set up in a certain way at the moment as consumers, as everything is wrapped in plastic, it's very difficult to get around without, you know in lots of places, without a car because public transport has a lot to be desired and it's expensive, but if you can try to support things that are doing the right thing, that will slowly, slowly build, and if you can have joy in that, that builds as well. Adam: It is interesting to me, we tend to do what our friends do, or people we know do, so, and that's why a single person can make a difference isn't it because, a friend will copy you. And suddenly what you do isn't a single thing, it's a big thing. That's, that's amazing. So, look we're in this park which is very nice. I'm not sure I've met one leaf yet; we're meant to be walking around and I lazily dragged you to this chair! But, have you, I mean there's lots of Woodland Trust places outside of London, they are quite close but also quite far. Have you been to many? Are there any that stick in your mind? Charity: I've been to Hainault, and I've been to Langley Vale. What I would love to do is go to Scotland, I know there's lots of work happening there at the moment and I'd really like to visit, it's really interesting to see the difference between a very very ancient woodland and something that's quite newly developed, and I know that there are some places that the Woodland Trust are trying to connect two different forests, and I think, is it the pine martin (?) that they are trying to get to, sort of, repopulate? And it's very difficult to do that because they like travelling and so you have to have a long distance in between, you know, one dense forest and another dense forest for them to actually want to stick around. So, I would kinda like to see that in action. Adam: Well, the Langley Vale Forest, I have just been to, and it features in our previous podcast. All the commemoration of the First World War. Which I think was one of the most interesting and sort of, I don't know, shocking, I don't know, because there's a lot of… it commemorates really terrible events, but in a sort of, living memory, which I thought was really forceful. And that's I think one of the more interesting podcasts so if you listen to this one, but also that one, I also thought that one was great. So, it's amazing to sort of talk to you about this, but as you were saying, you are an exceptionally busy actor as well, so you're doing… is The Great still in production? Charity: It is, we're filming season three at the moment. Adam: Wow, so how many programmes in a season? Charity: so, there's ten episodes in each season, and the first two have come out via Hulu, and, in America and STARZPLAY, the first season was out on Channel 4 a couple of years ago and the second season is coming out this summer, on Channel 4, and we're filming season three. So, um, it's a lot of fun, it's very silly and it was lovely to be doing something, I was so lucky to be working during the last lockdown, albeit with really rigorous Covid protocols in place, we managed to get it done. Adam: Well fantastic, I will watch out for the next season! And all of your stuff on social media and everything. It's been a real pleasure talking to you Charity, thank you very much! Charity: Thanks. Well thanks to Charity for taking me on a tour of her local small, wooded area in South London, and do remember if you want to find a wood near you, well the Woodland Trust has a website to help. Just go to woodlandtrust.org.uk/findawood. Until next time happy wandering. Thank you for listening to the Woodland Trust Woodland Walks.

GB2RS News Sunday the 7th of August 2022 The news headlines: GB22HQ moving location Welsh operators wanted for GB22GW New Special Interest Group Manager appointed For operational reasons, it is no longer possible to operate GB22HQ, the special event station for the Commonwealth Games, from the Smithfield site in Birmingham. The move to the Smithfield site had been a last-minute decision due to other calls on our original site by the Commonwealth Games organisers. It has been problematic due to lack of public access, high RF noise levels and ingress of water and dust on site. We're pleased to say that GB22HQ will continue on the air for the remainder of the games thanks to members of the Wolverhampton Amateur Radio Society and the Central Radio Amateur Circle. GB22GW is the Commonwealth Games callsign for Wales. Cath, GW4CVT is looking for volunteers in Wales to use the callsign either by CW, SSB or data modes until the 21st of August. To book a slot, visit qrz.com and search for GB22GW. There you will find Cath's email address and the slots that are available. The RSGB is pleased to announce that Philip Hosey, MI0MSO has been appointed as the Special Interest Group Manager.

Please note that EU stations work non-EU stations only. Next Sunday, the 14th, the fifth 70MHz Cumulative contest runs from 1400 to 1600UTC. Using all modes, the exchange is signal report, serial number and locator. Now the radio propagation report, compiled by G0KYA, G3YLA, and G4BAO on Friday the 5th of August 2022. Last week was characterised by a solar flux index of around 100 but reasonably settled geomagnetic conditions. The SFI had a low of 94 on Sunday and a high of 100 on Thursday. The Kp index has been in the range of one to four, with more settled conditions being experienced in the second half of the week. Daytime critical frequencies have ranged from lows of 5MHz and highs of up to 7MHz. As a result, skip distances on 40m have varied dramatically, and often very quickly. This has caught out some amateurs who have found solid inter-G conditions one minute, but fast fading as the critical frequency has dropped leaving only European stations workable. As a guide, keep one eye on propquest.co.uk for the current critical frequency and extrapolated maximum usable frequencies over different path lengths. Only then can you make sense of daytime 40m propagation. Sporadic-E is still putting in an appearance but is far less prevalent as we head into August. It may still be usable for weak signal modes like FT8, but loud SSB signals from Europe may be less prevalent. Next week, NOAA's Space Weather Prediction Centre predicts that the SFI will be in the range of 98-100 again. That is, it doesn't think we will get any rapid increases in sunspot numbers over the next week. The Kp index is forecast to be in the range 2-3, which means moderately settled geomagnetic conditions. However, a coronal hole on the Sun's equator may cause some problems just after the weekend. So daytime F2-layer MUFs over 3,000km paths may be up to 18-21MHz. Any short-skip 10m openings are therefore likely to be Sporadic-E. And now the VHF and up propagation news. The basic pattern continues unchanged with high pressure favouring southern and eastern areas and lows with their fronts affecting the northwest. Occasionally weakening cold fronts drift southeast. This will provide further tropo opportunities, particularly during the hot and humid periods and in this case, a good cloud cover near the surface is a good indicator. The preferred paths would most likely be across the North Sea to Denmark, Germany and Netherlands and across the Channel to the continent. A more extensive option could be to the south across Biscay to Spain and beyond to the Canaries and mid-Atlantic. Rain scatter is unlikely for most areas except for very isolated showery developments on the weak cold fronts over central parts of the country. The Sporadic-E season continues to trickle charge log books with occasional openings. Although the jet stream activity is relatively weak over central and southern Europe, it has been shown that it is sometimes more important that the pattern is moving, however weak. The stronger flow appears to favour paths across the north of the UK to Iceland and Greenland and towards Scandinavia and the Baltic states. Check the daily blogs on Propquest.co.uk, which continue through August, for the latest thoughts on the daily jet stream charts. Next week sees the peak of the Perseids around the 12th of August and even if you don't have the gear for meteor scatter it's hard to beat watching meteors on a warm summer evening. The Sun has continued to exhibit some marked coronal holes, a potential source of the solar wind surges that produce the aurora, so be aware of this. The Moon passes a milestone this month with perigee and minimum declination coinciding. From then onwards, perigee and maximum declination start to drift closer again, but it's not until September 2026 that they coincide. All week the Moon's elevation is low at its zenith and the Moon is only visible for a few hours out of the 24. 144MHz sky noise is high, reaching 3000 Kelvin on Monday. And that's all from the propagation team this week.

Before Hines Building Maintenance, he was the Director of Facilities and Facilities Manager at International School of the Peninsula. In this episode… The pandemic has created hybrid work models and the need to condense or expand building spaces. So, how can you reconstruct your facilities to overcome these challenges and comply with demands for innovative work styles? When developing new spaces, it's imperative to modernize your facilities to accommodate collaboration and encourage a smooth transition back to the office. These renovations require shutting down areas that no longer serve a purpose to make room for open spaces with inviting and comfortable environments. Through careful consideration of contemporary work approaches, you can manage your facilities effectively.   In today's episode of Watching Paint Dry, Greg Owens sits down with Dave Scroggins of Cushman & Wakefield and Nic Guedenet of Hines Building Maintenance to discuss preparing facilities for expansion. Together, they share the challenges of managing projects, material shortages, and inflation, how hybrid work models affect facility spaces, and the process of managing corporate and other public facilities.

Did you know that there is a popular myth that America's favorite dessert, the chocolate chip cookie, was invented and became popular on accident? In the 1930s Ruth Wakefield invited the Chocolate Crunch Cookie recipe in the Toll House Inn, which was a popular restaurant in Massachusetts that she owned with her husband. There are popular myths from Wakefield unexpectedly ran out of bakers' chocolate or nuts for a regular ice-cream cookie recipe and, in desperation, replaced them with chunks chopped out of a bar of Nestle bittersweet chocolate, to chocolate accidentally fell into cookie batter to a rushed last-minute replacement ingredient miracle, to Ruth strategically developed the recipe. Whatever the real story is, the Chocolate Chip cookie's popularity soared as soon as it hit the scene, as the richness and comfort it provided during the Great Depression and World War two was needed for American soldiers and civilians alike. According to the Kitchen Project, seven billion chocolate chip cookies are eaten annually and toll house produces 33 thousand cookies a day.Support WITF: https://www.witf.org/support/give-now/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Today we're bringing you an episode of City Space, a Globe and Mail podcast about how to make our cities better, hosted by Adrian Lee.If you're a white-collar worker, chances are your office setup looks different than it did before the pandemic. After our two-year-long global experiment with remote work, many employees say there's lots to like about it, with a number of companies now offering hybrid workplaces. All that empty office space is going to have an effect on the rest of our cities. In this episode, Jennifer Barrett, a senior planner with The Canadian Urban Institute outlines three ways that vacant offices could affect our downtown cores and what she hopes will be our way forward. We take a look at what Calgary is doing – since it was dealing with a vacant-office crisis even before COVID-19 – with the help of The Globe's deputy national editor for cities and real estate James Keller. Samantha Sannella, the managing director for strategic consulting at global commercial real estate firm Cushman and Wakefield, also joins us to talk about how Calgary's revitalization plans for their downtown could inspire other Canadian cities, and whether plans to convert offices into housing are realistic. Finally, Reshma Saujani, the founder of Girls Who Code, explains why so many people want this office revolution in the first place, and how this represents an opportunity to shift away from the white, male-centric ways in which workplaces were originally designed.
